The Hardware Authentication Device
Take your Authentication and Security to the next level with YubiKey. This device takes the place of your other Authenticator (Google 2FA, Authy, etc) and solidifies your ability to authenticate your actions and logins. With this device, you plug it into your computer/device and it will then think the YubiKey is a Keyboard to type on. Once it is in, type in your username and password like normal, and then when you get to the 2FA box, touch and hold the button on your YubiKey. This will enter a whole bunch of digits into the box and if you hold it long enough (which is the correct way), it will even hit “enter” at the end for you and log you in automatically. This is really awesome and makes you feel like Bitcoin James Bond, taking security as priority. Never again will Google 2FA or Authy feel as secure as they once did. Phone dead? No problem! Ditch the App, and get the YubiKey.
